A reduction linocut of a carpet of bluebells in an imaginary woodland, with bright light shining through the trees.
In anticipation of spring and of bluebells emerging... This print was completed on a grey, rainy, wintry day to cheer myself up! The scene is solely from my memory and imagination - unusual for me as I normally rely quite heavily on my own photos for guidance.
A reduction print is a relief print formed with layers of colour that are cut and printed from the same block, in this case, from lino. This is one of a small edition of prints, all of which are printed by hand so small variations occur between them making each one truly original.
This work is printed with water-based, light-fast inks on Somerset Satin paper and has a beautiful matt finish. It is numbered, titled and signed at the bottom, mounted in a neutral colour and wrapped in cellophane to keep it clean. The mounted work will fit straight into a standard off-the-shelf 10x12inch frame.
This artwork will be packaged in a bubble envelope with plenty of card support for safety.
